This summer’s crop of new releases has something for everyone. Looking for a romantic beach read? You’ve got a lot of options that will make you swoon. Want a thriller that you can’t put down? There are murder mysteries and even an “anti-colonial space heist.” Is non-fiction more your speed? One book traces the history of reality TV with anecdotes by the people who had a hand in creating it.

To help us compile our To Be Read list for the season, our friends at Goodreads compiled a list of the most anticipated books of summer according to their members. Take a look at the picks below, and bring your favorites to the pool/beach, on your next flight or camping trip, and more.
